Chinese Dragon

Melli wants to see dragons.

I’m not certain this is what she had in mind, but it’s what I’ve got:

Dragon heads resting on a table.

Dragon dancers resting on the lawn.

These Chinese Dragon dancers ended their performance just before Stanton’s Thursday Night Band took the stage. We arrived in time to watch them rest and pack up. I was unable to get any photos of them dancing.

Quilly is the pseudonym of Charlene L. Amsden, who lives on The Big Island in Hawaii. When she is not hanging out with Amoeba, she is likely teaching or sewing. Or she could be cooking, taking photographs, or even writing. But if she's not doing any of that, she's probably on Facebook or tinkering with her blog.


  1. DANG!!! I DID wanna see them dancing! They are EXCELLENT dragons! I bet they were flat out GORGEOUS in motion! ( I knew Hawaii would have some dragons… I just knew it!)

  2. I think this is a great post, Quilly. Not only is there the dragon heads, but also has red, so could be used to double as Ruby Tuesday, haha. I’m playing both this week, the Dragon Hunt and Ruby Tuesday.

    Please see my post here, and/or my whole blog I Was Born2Cree8.

    Thanks for visiting earlier and leaving me the comment re my blog problem. I posted this since then, haha.

  3. Quilly, I did an update on the story of the windmill for you!

    I love the dragon challenge by Melli, but I just don’t think I have any dragons in my archives!

  4. Ohhh Quilly, this is so exciting!
    Just now I realized it is that same mill I used to look at, sitting on the back of my grandmothers bike!!!
    I didn’t at first but now I recognize the black and white picture!!! Yaaaay, I had no idea when I saw it last Sunday that there was such a history connected to that mill, nor that it was the mill from my childhood years!!!
    Thank you so much for making me look into it and investigate it a little further, ooh, you just can’t believe what is going through me now!!!

  5. Holly — I enjoy watching them and was disappointed that they were packing up.

    Amber — time to go Dragon hunting!

    Melli — Hawaii has lots of dragons, but if they’re not in my archives you’re out of luck because I am stuck at home and there are none here!

    Baba — maybe next time I’ll get them dancing.

    Karen — the long capes snapped off and got folded away, and the dancers wore the legs (their own pants).

    Mar — I wish he’d been dancing!

    Carletta — thank you.

    Alice — you’re on my feed reader so you never have to worry I won’t notice. I always read your weather and your quotes, too. I just don’t always answer.

    Jinetje — I am glad I could be a catalyst for happy memories.

    Mumma — I kind of prefer them with their heads on!
